One of Chelsea’s main managerial targets Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has spoken of his admiration for the Premier League.
The 59-year-old coach spent much of his career coaching in the lower leagues of Italian football, but he has won plenty of admirers with his progressive tactics, otherwise known as ‘’Sarri Ball,” since taking over at the Stadio San Paolo in 2015.
His Napoli side had looked well placed to finally break Juventus’ dominance of Serie A after beating the Turin giants recently, only to hand Massimiliano Allegri’s men the title last weekend by losing 3-0 away to Fiorentina.
Speaking after his sides disappointing loss in Florence Sarri, who has long spoken of a need for a new challenge, seemed fed up with Juve’s stranglehold on Italian football and spoke of his admiration for the unpredictability of the Premier League.
“The only hope is that, in life, everything has to end sometime! Sooner or later, the domination will end,”
“I must say, seeing the Premier League have this constant alternation of winners every year, it grows the love for teams and makes everyone have hope of success.
“It’s a different situation here in Italy.
“The risk is that we’ll lose many fans, because they cheer on teams that will never win and they know that too well.”
“If we impoverish the whole system, then the rich will be impoverished too.”
